Hip-hippo-ray! Design Team News!

I am SO excited to finally share the news with you today....

I'm a TRENDSETTER for There She Goes Clear Stamps!!!

Woohooo! I'm so excited. This is one extremely talented team and the stamps, well, *swoon* I feel so lucky to be joining a fun, feisty group of gals and stamping with these amazing designs is a dream come true.

I just had to make a card to celebrate, and Zoo-pendous fit the bill perfectly! (there are 30 stamps in this set! amazing!)

I stamped these adorable hippos on x-press it blending cardstock and coloured with copics. I used cool grays for the mama hippo and blue violets for the baby. The shadowing was created with R000 and R00 and I used the lightest blues for the water.

I covered the water with Crystal Stickles, left it to dry, then layered on Glossy Accents for lots of sparkle and shine.

My jumbo brads were layered with a small circle punch and I added a banner anchored with some buttons and twine to continue the celebration theme!

Here's the inside of my card...

I had to use this cute peacock as well, he's also coloured with copics and I added a little Stickles to his tail.

Thanks SO much for stopping by today, I'm really looking forward to sharing the new release from There She Goes with you this week, it's amazing!
